The Musée d’Archéologie Nationale is the French National Archaeology Museum, covering pre-historic times to the Merovingian period. It is located in the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Yvelines, about 19 kilometers (12 mi) west of Paris.

The museum houses about 3 million archaeological objects, of which about 30,000 are exhibited. These finds, discovered on the French territory, are presented by chronological periods: Paleolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman period (Roman Gaul), and the first Middle Ages (Merovingian Gaul). A collection of foreign archaeological and ethnological objects are presented in the comparative archaeology room.
